Super Bowl Preview and Prediction

You knew it was coming. My views and predictions on
Super Bowl XXXVIII


The Place: Reliant Stadium, Houston, Texas
The Matchup:
For the AFC:
New England Patriots.
How they got here:
Immovable object stops the irresistable force, as the Patriots stopped MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.
Strengths:
Defense, Defense, Defense. Plus, playoff experience, having won the Super Bowl two years ago. They know exactly what they are in for.
Weaknesses:
Not the greatest offense on the planet.
For the NFC:
The Carolina Panthers
How they got here:
Shutting down the Philadelphia Eagles on the road.
Strengths:
Defense and a good running game led by Steven Davis. Good special teams.
Weaknesses:
Besides Davis, the offense is lackluster. Delhomme is not yet proven to win games, but hasn’t lost them either.
